Spanish National Cancer Research Centre (CNIO) 2024 Summer Training Programme for Undergraduate Students| Partially Funded |

The CNIO Summer Training Programme in Madrid, Spain, provides research training opportunities to students of all nationalities interested in pursuing a career in Biomedicine and Life Sciences during the summer.

Up to 4 summer training positions will be awarded during 2023 to university students from any country who study in the Biomedical & Life Sciences or related fields. The training programme will run from June 24th to August 16th (8 weeks), and will consist of 300 working hours. The intensive nature of the programme requires a full-time commitment (37.5 hours per week) from the participant. Students are required to participate in all scheduled activities.

Each student will be working under the supervision of a group/section/unit leader or a member of the research group. Participants will attend a series of weekly seminars given by faculty members and researchers from the CNIO. Students will be required to present the results of their research in a special session to be held at the end of the programme.


  • The CNIO will cover the student’s travel expenses: one return ticket from the student’s hometown to Madrid.
  • During the summer training programme, the CNIO will subsidize breakfasts and lunches at the centre’s cafeteria.
  • Students will be covered by a personal accident insurance throughout their stay at the CNIO.
  • Citizens from countries not issuing the EHC will receive a private health insurance and a repatriation insurance, except those who are already covered by a valid health insurance during the whole summer stay.
  • Participation in this programme does not imply any kind of contractual agreement between the selected candidates and the CNIO.
  • Upon completion of the training programme, the CNIO will issue a certificate indicating his/her area of training.
